im think i may have eye allergies but im not positive. everyone i asked said they think so, too.
does anyone know the symptoms?
i get unbearable headaches basically every day, back aches in the back of my head and neck, my eyes are constantly dry and i always have to look around to "stretch" them and strain them. i used to wear contact about 3 years ago but they were scratched my eyes and were uncomfortable i couldnt even wear them so i stopped. could that be the cause? i just want to know that exactly eye allergies are and their symptoms

Eye allergy symptoms can be an itchy, gritty feeling, redness, watering or dry eyes. It sounds like its possible you can have allergies but you should see your doctor if this is really bothering you. They have otc eye drops that can be used for allergy or dry eye, but be sure to steer clear of any drops that take the redness out since you can have a rebound affect - meaning it can make your eyes redder and more irritated.
